A forward-thinker by all standards, Trish firmly believes America exists on a precipice of opportunity with the potential to embrace some of the largest economic and social advances in history. She envisions that with smart investments in green technologies, education, science, medicine, and more, America has the potential to be global leaders in building a future for the future. From the latest research, Trish realizes the necessity that America adapt rapidly to an ever-changing and mobile world by working to create new sustainable jobs, infrastructure, educational opportunities, social justices, and marked improvement in a work-life balance for all American citizens (e.g. eliminating the need to work multiple jobs just to pay the bills and living paycheck to paycheck). Additionally, she is an avid advocate for policy which maximizes the opportunities for all Americans, and is passionate to fight for the values of her friends, family, and fellow Coloradans.
Trish lives at her home in Superior, Colorado and is a biomedical researcher and speaker by training. She is currently penning her first non-fiction book on her political convictions and values, and additionally serves as a Board Advisor for the 500 Women Scientists Youth Pod in Boulder County, the Principal Director of CoMusica (a community music program she founded in 2013), and as Lead Coordinator for 314 Action Colorado Chapter, a nonprofit aimed at transitioning scientists into policy. She also leads a STEM Outreach initiative for the Colorado State Democratic Party, partnering legislators with experts for policy research and development. Trish has previously worked at the University of Colorado Boulder, Denver Health Hospital, and the Stanford University School of Medicine, most recently working on a National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded study to solve rare and undiagnosed diseases. As a scientist who passionately believes in applying evidence-based solutions to policy, Trish is actively exploring a bid for the U.S. Senate in Colorado, 2020.
